In 1952, Arthur A. Callister began trading wool with his father in a little shop on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City, Utah. Noticing how many customers were in need of quality tack to outfit themselves and their horses, AA Callister's Western Wear and Tack was born! Over 50 years and many satisfied customers we are still a family owned tack shop still located on the original site. We are proud to represent the traditions and lifestyles that made the West famous. We are also proud to feature some of the finest tack, clothing, and equipment made. Come live part of the American West today!

Dealing with a Grown-Up Halloween

Growing up it always seems easy to decide what to be. We either had something in mind, or our mom did. Now that we are adults it isn’t that simple since we don’t have mom there to help us out now. We have to make these decisions on our own.

First, we have to find a costume that is comfortable to wear. Not all materials are going to be comfortable to wear. You want to be sure that you can actually stand wearing it for longer than a few minutes.

You also need to be sure that the costume is not going to overheat you. A lot of costumes will work outdoors in the cold fall air, but when you go inside for a themed party you can quickly get extremely hot. To avoid hot flashes find a costume that caters to the temperature you need it to.

Another thing to consider is whether the costume fits you or not. Some costumes are more specific to the size of the costume than others. Unless it is a costume that caters to the “one size fits all” category, be sure to find a costume that is the correct size for you.

Modesty is another thing to consider with adult clothing that you don’t really have to think about as a child. Now it seems that all women’s costumes are made to be “sexy”. If you don’t want to show off that much skin at your work party, you might have to do a little more digging around with your costumes to find one you like.

Some costumes are always going to be classic fallbacks. One classic fallback is the cowboy or cowgirl costume. Dress up in cowboy hats and cowboy boots, and add a plaid shirt or vest and you have a costume. You can make it fun by choosing a fun cowboy hat. There are a lot of different options with cowboy hats, like leather, straw, or even felt.

Other great options are ghosts, vampires and witches. Each allows you to use your own interpretation as far as coming up with the costumes. They also can be found both in stores or can be handmade.

Celebrate Halloween this year with a great costume. Perhaps your costume is already waiting for you in your closet, or maybe you can find accessories at the local store. Whatever your decision, find a costume you feel comfortable with and really love wearing.
